Romantic Bucharest

by chiccolatino

Hi everybody!!
I just discovered this interesting forum.. And want to make my congrats, it is full of useful information! Unluckily I did not find the only one that I really need now.. :( So I try asking you.
Next weekend I'll be in Bucharest and meet a colleague from there. We have already met twice, but the last times she used to organise everything, while this time I'd want to make her a surprise.. Could you please suggest me some good places/things to do? It is extremely difficult for me, as I am from another Country and don't know Bucharest at all. I will meet her on Sat in late afternoon, so I'd like to find something nice to do before dinner, a good place to eat (even a romantic one.. but easy!) and something for the night (not clubs..). Is there any panoramic restaurant or something like that, which you know? Help me!!
Thank you very much, and have a great 2010!!
Fede

Hello,
Bucharest is a very mixed city, but for the night life and for fun quite good!
There are quite a few nice parks to have a stroll at daytime or in the evening: Cismigiu Park (downtown from University Circus), Herastrau Park (North of Bucharest), Carol I Park (2km away from Unirii Square). You could also enjoy the nice view in the evening of Casa Poporului (House of Parliament) and the boulevard, from Unirii Square. Further, the Historic Centre of the City which has been partly renovated. It has rebecome an extremely nice area with nice streets and full of cafes, bars pubs and restaurants in former historic houses. All seem quite romantic, so you can try them out. To reach the historic centre, just alight at the University Circus and then walk 7-10min down the blvd.
I hope this basic information is useful to you.

Travel Tips for Bucharest

..history...

by Lucky79

Bucharest is a political administrative, economic and cultural centre; with material vestiges from Palaeolithic Age and documentary attestation from 1459, September 20. Bucharest, the most important urban centre of Romania (with a population six times larger than that of the second largest town Iasi), is not only a tourist spot of prime importance but also a gateway and starting point for tourist destinations across the country. The larger parks and lakes which lend a distinct note to this "gardencity" are joined by points of attraction in its immediate proximity: the Snagov forest and lake (including the renowned monastery lying on the isle in the midst of the lake, where ruling Prince Vlad the Impaler is thought to have been buried), Mogosoaia - with the Palace of Prince Constantin Brâncoveanu, the Pustnicu Forest, the picturesque monasteries of Cernica and Pasarea, the Baneasa Woods (with the largest zoological garden of Romania being located there), the Caldarusani Lake and Monastery (which was founded by ruling Prince Matei Basarab). The open-air Village Museum (the second most important in Europe after the one in Stockholm), the Romanian Peasant Museum, the Museum of National History or the 16th-17th churches in Bucharest should not be missed by any tourist. Lovers of contemporary art can admire and even buy at the art galleries in the centre of the city paintings by contemporary artists who have already made a name for themselves or by young talents.

New business center

by codrutz

As you may have noticed, I like tall buildings, that what the guys at skycrapers call highrise buildings.

The newest addition to Bucharest's skyline - if I may say so - is this building, which is pretty tall (I still don't know exactly it' height) and masive. This will serve as a headquarter for many companies, and it will probably boost the traffic and the number of people at rush hours. Hopefully it will provide a large underground parking space.

The location of the building is well chosen, as it's in the Charles de Gaulle Plaza, just across to the entrance to the Herastrau Park.

Mogosoaia Palace

by elcolibri

Mogosaia Palace is out of Bucharest (around 15 kilometers). It was built by order of Constantin Brancoveanu, ruller of Wallachia. The palace is a masterpiece of the Brancovenesc architectural style with arcades, columns and balconies of traditional romanian origin. Today the palace seat a museum "Muzeul Brancovenesc".

Central shopping

by Romanian_Bat about Unirea Shopping Centre

The biggest shopping centre in Bucharest during the communist rule, Unirea Store was built partly on the site of the former 1846 Small Spanish Temple (also known as Ca'al Cadosh Salom Temple). With a few larger and more popular malls in the city nowadays, the Unirea still gets its crowds of customers given its prime location, in Unirea Square. It hosts many fashion boutiques, as well as electronics, computer and children shops. In the basement there is a well stocked La Fourmi supermarket (their selection of Romanian wine, baklava, blue cheese and Lebanese pickles are great). On the ground floor, there also is an excellent, but expensive shop selling traditional artifacts and souvenirs (there is a better and much cheaper selection at the shop on premises of the Romanian Peasant Museum). A CD of Maria Tanase or Ioana Radu from the third floor, a bottle of Murfatlar (red) wine or Jidvei (white) wine at La Fourmi in the basement, or a glass painted icon at the souvenir shop on the ground floor.

transport

by pufunk

Transport in Bucharest:

is made up of the Bucharest Metro, as well as a surface transport system run by RATB (Regia Autonoma de Transport Bucuresti), which consists of buses, trams, trolleybuses and light rail. In addition, there is a private taxi and minibus system. The metro and the surface transport system — currently run by two separate state-owned corporations — will be merged in early 2006 to form the Bucharest Metropolitan Transport Board. The city is served by two airports: Henri Coandă International Airport (formerly Otopeni) and Aurel Vlaicu International Airport (formerly Băneasa). Henri Coandă is the largest airport in Romania and the main hub for the national operator TAROM. The main railway station is Gara de Nord, or North Station, which provides connections to all major cities in Romania as well as international destinations such as Budapest, Sofia, Vienna and Prague.
Although it is situated on the banks of a river, Bucharest has never functioned as a port city, with other Romanian cities such as Constanţa and Brăila acting as the country's main ports. However, the Danube-Bucharest Canal, which is 73 km long, is currently in construction and is around 60% completed. When finished, the canal will link Bucharest to the Danube River and, via the Danube-Black Sea Canal, to the Black Sea. This corridor is expected to be a significant component of the city's transport infrastructure and increase sea traffic by a large margin.
